Dear colleagues,

below two announcements of books that have just appeared and that you might 
be interested in:
"Imitation in Animals and Artifacts" and
"Socially Intelligent Agents: Creating Relationships with Computers and Robots"

best regards, Kerstin Dautenhahn

---------------

1) "Imitation in Animals and Artifacts"
Editors: Kerstin Dautenhahn, Chrystopher Nehaniv
MIT Press, 2002

List of Contents:
http://homepages.feis.herts.ac.uk/~nehaniv/ASRG/AnArt.html
Ordering: http://mitpress.mit.edu/ or Amazon

Book Description:
The effort to explain the imitative abilities of humans and other animals 
draws on fields as diverse as animal behavior, artificial intelligence, 
computer science, comparative psychology, neuroscience, primatology, and 
linguistics. This volume represents a first step toward integrating 
research from those studying imitation in humans and other animals, and 
those studying imitation through the construction of computer software and 
robots.
Imitation is of particular importance in enabling robotic or software 
agents to share skills without the intervention of a programmer and in the 
more general context of interaction and collaboration between software 
agents and humans. Imitation provides a way for the agent—-whether 
biological or artificial--to establish a “social relationship” and learn 
about the demonstrator’s actions, in order to include them in its own 
behavioral repertoire. Building robots and software agents that can imitate 
other artificial or human agents in an appropriate way involves complex 
problems of perception, experience, context, and action, solved in nature 
in various ways by animals that imitate.


2) "Socially Intelligent Agents: Creating Relationships with Computers and 
Robots",
Editors: Kerstin Dautenhahn, Alan Bond, Lola Cañamero and Bruce Edmonds
Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2002

Table of Contents:

Ordering:

Book Description:
The field of Socially Intelligent Agents (SIA) is a fast growing and 
increasingly important area that comprises highly active research 
activities and strongly interdisciplinary approaches. SOCIALLY INTELLIGENT 
AGENTS, edited by Kerstin Dautenhahn, Alan Bond, Lola Cañamero and Bruce 
Edmonds, emerged from the AAAI Symposium “Socially Intelligent Agents - The 
Human in the Loop”. The book provides 32 chapters, written by leading SIA 
researchers, addressing topics such as: social robotics, embodied 
conversational agents, affective computing, anthropomorphism, narrative and 
story-telling, social aspects in multi-agent systems, new technologies for 
education and therapy, and more. This breadth of topics covered in SOCIALLY 
INTELLIGENT AGENTS provides the reader with a comprehensive look at current 
research activities in the area. SOCIALLY INTELLIGENT AGENTS serves as an 
excellent reference for a wide readership, e.g. computer scientists, 
roboticists, web programmers and designers, computer users, cognitive 
scientists, and other researchers interested in the study of how humans 
relate to computers and robots, and how these agents in return can relate 
to humans. This book is also suitable as research material in a variety of 
advanced level courses, including Applied Artificial Intelligence, 
Autonomous Agents, Human-Computer Interaction, Situated, Embodied AI.
